College football rolls into its second week of the bowl season on Monday, and over half of the games on the bowl slate will have been played by the end of the night on Dec. 30.
But while many fans are looking forward to the bigger matchups that await on New Year’s Day and beyond, we’d like to take a step back and admire the performances of some of the talented players from the earlier bowl games.
Some of these players were the MVPs of their respective game; some weren’t. Some of the players were on the winning end; others had to walk off the field in defeat. But the one thing that all the players had in common is that they provided some great memories for those in attendance and watching on television.
In the following slides, we’ll take a look at the best individual performances from the first week of bowl action.
